Improve your focus, wellbeing and confidence to grow as a leader and achieve the results that matter to you

When I start working with leaders, they feel overwhelmed by the never-ending challenges, pressures and complexities of working in organisations.

Faced with a diary and to do list full of ‘stuff’, they lack focus and can’t find time for themselves.

They feel like they’re bumbling along, and just going through the motions. Failing to connect with their colleagues and not making a difference, despite all their hard work.

And while they feel like this, it saps their energy and they lose confidence in who they really are. They start overthinking situations and avoid making decisions, afraid of making the wrong move.

While they tell themselves they’re ‘doing OK’, deep down they know they’re capable of so much more.

They are.

Imagine the results you could achieve if you had a greater awareness of yourself, were able to cope with the many challenges, and felt confident in your abilities as a leader


How would it feel to not only know your values, strengths and potential; but utilise them on a daily basis?

Think how you would show up with others and have engaging conversations. What would it feel like to be confident in holding others accountable and feel a real sense of achievement at the end of the day?

Imagine living your life as the real you, and flourishing in every aspect of your life and work.

You were hired for a reason. I’m here to help you regain your inner confidence to be the real you, and rediscover your love for your work. 

That way you can achieve results that are important to you and enjoy the recognition you rightly deserve.

What My Wonderful Clients Say

  • When I started working with Andrea, I had lost my confidence, my sense of purpose and felt disillusioned with my role.

    Andrea was fabulous. She helped me to unpick the exact things that were causing me to be stressed and regain my sense of pride in all I have achieved in my career to date.

    Now I’m mostly back to full strength, happier and more fulfilled. People within my team are clearer about what I expect of them and how they need to perform their duties. I feel as though I have got my work-life ratio much more balanced and my family are happier that I’m happier, too!

    Honestly, my thanks to Andrea. I really don’t think I would still be doing the job if she hadn’t come along when she did.

  • Andrea makes individual coaching sessions challenging and enjoyable and always productive.

    Her ability to get to the heart of the issue means you are gaining invaluable insight into your own behaviours and drivers and those of others.

    I can honestly say that Andrea has made a tangible difference to the delivery of the services I lead, as well as my own personal effectiveness and direction.

    Many thanks for all your support Andrea, you have given me clarity of thought in chaotic times and during periods of great change within the NHS.

    Jan Wilson, AHP Divisional Director, NHS
  • When I started working with Andrea, I was unclear of my values and needed to revisit my vision and strengths.

    Andrea kept things simple and gave me the frameworks to facilitate my thinking.

    What stood out for me in the coaching sessions was the simplicity of getting to my core values. I had all the answers, but needed to spend the time to look at them in detail without any other distractions.

    Now I’m being my authentic self more of the time, building relationships with new colleagues and making decisions based on my values.

    Thank you Andrea, your skill in peeling back the layers, really helped me look at my inner core and built up a greater understanding of myself.

If I’m sure of anything, it’s this:

Whatever you feel is stopping you from feeling happy and positive or standing in the way of you achieving results - whether it’s your colleagues, your working environment or the culture of your organisation - it isn’t that!

My challenge is always, let’s start with you. My 20 years’ experience of challenging leaders to challenge themselves asks “could you be getting in your own way?”

Change starts with you.

I believe you already have the knowledge and experience to answer your own questions.

You just need time, away from all the chaos, where you can reflect, recharge and refocus on you and your role as a leader.

Through coaching, workshops, online courses and retreats, I help you slow down, confront your ‘home truths’ and focus on leading yourself so you can lead others from your core values and strengths.

This won’t always be easy - working with me is not just a coffee and a chat! I’m devoted to helping you regain your confidence, so you can be the real you and flourish as a leader.
